Hinge is introducing a new profile feature, Dating Intentions, designed to encourage users to be open about their expectations. With the launch of this new feature, users will be able to select a dating target to display on their profile. You can choose from the following options: Life Partner, Long Term, Long Term, Open Short Term, Short Term, Open Long Term, Short Term, and Find Out My Dating Goals.
The new feature also allows users to add more context to their dating backstory to their profile via a new Open-Text “Backstory” option. According to Hinge, the new Dating Intentions feature will allow users to focus on the right people and connect with those who share the same dating goals.
“With more than a third (34%) of Hinge users having previously been in a ‘situation’, this new feature has been shown to help the data decide who to match with, with 65% of Hinge -Dates agree it helped them with their dating decisions,” the company notes.
Hinge’s latest addition comes as the dating app rolled out a slew of new features over the past year designed to make it easier for users to connect with others.
Last month, Hinge introduced a new feature, Self-Care Prompts, aimed at stimulating initial in-game conversations about self-care priorities. Hinge’s in-app prompts are conversation starters that users answer as part of their profiles and are shown to potential matches. The prompts are designed to allow users to showcase their personality rather than having a generic bio. With this latest launch, users can now select up to three new self-care prompts to stimulate conversations about mental health awareness.
The new self-care prompts have been added to the existing prompt packs on Hinge, including About Me, Story Time, Let’s chat about, and Voice First. Hinge’s Voice First feature, which launched last fall, went viral on TikTok as users shared their experiences with the feature. Voice Prompts allow users to respond to a prompt with a 30-second voice recording, allowing for some fun stories to be shared in a more personal way.
